Brooks Robinson sculpture unveiling moved from Saturday, May 12 to Saturday, September 29

The Orioles today announced that the BROOKS ROBINSON sculpture unveiling originally scheduled for Saturday, May 12 has been postponed until Saturday, September 29.

Robinson's sculpture will be unveiled as part of the Orioles Legends Celebration Series, in which the six greatest Orioles of all time will have a larger-than-life bronze sculpture dedicated in the newly designed centerfield picnic grove.

"I am sorry I am unable to be there for the originally scheduled unveiling of the Brooks Robinson statue," Robinson said.  "My wife, family and I have looked forward to this day for a long time.  Due to health issues, I am unable to participate at this time.  We are grateful that the Orioles have offered to reschedule the unveiling and we look forward to celebrating with you in September."

The May 12 game vs. Tampa Bay at 7:05 p.m. will be played as originally scheduled. Fans no longer wishing to attend the May 12 game may exchange their tickets for the September 29 game, or any non-prime game this season, at no additional charge. The Brooks Robinson replica sculptures will be given to all fans in attendance only at the September 29 game. Tickets must be exchanged prior to June 30, 2012.
